Product Description

The European Buff coat (so-called because of its yellowish color) was an item of leather clothing worn by both the infantry and cavalry during the 17th century, usually worn under armour. It was derived from the simple leather jerkins worn by soldiers during the Tudor period eventually becoming a 3/4 length, close-fitting garment with long sleeves and a high collar to protect the neck and arms.

Typically, a buff coat was crafted from 3mm-thick suede cowhide and provided protection against swords, blunt trauma and possibly long range pistol balls, however as with all armour of the time it was ineffective against musket fire. As well as protecting the wearer from bad weather the buff coat became a highly desirable status symbol in the mid 17th century, making it the ancestor of the modern leather jacket.

See additional pictures for more details.

Our buff coat does not have buttons, it uses a leather thong fed through two holes. It is designed to be trimmed to length by you. The image shows the cord tucked in but would look better when trimmed
